Detective Senior Constable Simon Joyner is a fictional character from the Australian drama series City Homicide. He is portrayed by Daniel Macpherson. He first appeared in the debut episode of the series and has appeared in every episode since.
In the first episode, it was established that he was having an affair with Detective Senior Sergeant Wilton Sparkes's wife Lorraine. Wilton found out and assaulted Simon in the bathroom at work and threatened to tell Senior Sergeant Stanley Wolfe but had a heart attack before he got the chance. Simon's affair with Lorraine has recently ended after she dumped him.
Late in season 1, Simon was held hostage and nearly shot. This traumatised him for a time and he considered resigning from the police force, until his colleagues talked him around.
Early in season 2, Simon—along with Jennifer, Karen and Wilton Sparkes—was held hostage when a man who wanted the investigation into the death of his daughter re-opened held police headquarters under siege. Simon was handcuffed to a chair, along with Karen and Wilton while the man took Jen at gunpoint to find documents regarding the case on police computers. Later the man had Simon, Karen and Wilton chained together at a desk and tried to force them to investigate this case. Karen was shot in this incident but survived. The man later committed suicide. This event did not seem to put nearly as much pressure on Simon as the first time he was held hostage, however this time he had workmates with him and the first time he was all alone.
Relatively late in season 3, Simon became obsessed with incriminating a man that he thought had raped a young girl, going as far to threaten to shoot him if he didn't tell the Homicide squad that he'd raped and later killed the girl. It is rumoured that since no one has yet found out about this, that his departure from the show (confirmed to be in 2010) may be a result of someone finding out.
However, Joyner's departure in the premiere episode of season four was more complicated. He was implicated to have shoved a man off a balcony, but was later cleared. He was then alleged to have assaulted a man and threatened him to come to a police interview otherwise he'd kill him. The man was later found dead, and Joyner the prime suspect. He confessed to the assault, and was charged with the murder, but was later exonerated and given his badge and gun back (which had been taken when it was believed that he pushed the man off the balcony). However, he later resigned in the final scenes of the season four premiere
